Chapter 7. CIMOM installation and customization 293
As an example of exploiting SMI-S for switch monitoring, we focus our tests on two McDATA
switches available. McDATA, as Brocade, is providing an proxy CIM Agent to connect to its
devices.
In order to manage McDATA fabric using SMI-Specifications V1.1, we need the software
component mentioned on this site:

At the time of writing, this is McDATA SMI-S Interface:

The McDATA SMI-S Interface is a software product that provides support for the SMI-S for
McDATA director and switch products. McDATA SMI-S Interface provides an SMI-S interface
for management of McDATA products. It exposes a WBEM (specifically, CIM XML) interface
for management.
